Support from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation has allowed the Foundation to create scholarships to support individuals seeking training to assist in their entrepreneurial goals. Kari Sherwood, Port Clinton, was recently awarded a Burton D. Morgan scholarship. Kari is co-founder and President of Pathway Inclusion Center, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help children of all abilities thrive.
As plans for this new nonprofit business were coming together, Kari saw a need for training to help her run a successful nonprofit. Thanks to the OCCF Entrepreneurial Scholarship and her determination, Kari plans to complete 60 hours of training and receive her Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
The knowledge I am bringing back to Pathway Inclusion Center is invaluable and will help guide our practices for years to come,” said Kari. “In particular, the Operational Excellence workshop I recently attended has already motivated our Board and staff to begin writing a Fiscal Policies and Procedures Manual, as well as developing many other internal controls to ensure the integrity of our business.”
